Introduction
I am a social justice and policy researcher in education, and I often write about disability, indigeneity, and group power dynamics in education. Social justice movements and educational institutions have two-way relationships, and I focus on the policy and leadership decisions at the crux of those relationships, as well as interventions to change attitudes. Most of my publications so far have been literature reviews, but I am building my methodological toolbox.

A core component of the adjustment to blindness process is training, which ideally involves the use of sleepshades. This literature review investigates the reasons why sleepshade training typically lasts between six and nine months when attended on a full-time basis. The development of alternative techniques is often cited as the primary component...

Adjustment to blindness training involves both skill acquisition and emotional adjustment to blindness. Part of the emotional adjustment to blindness is coming to consider blindness a normal characteristic and identify oneself as a first-class member of society. Rehabilitation practitioners must cultivate feelings of dignity in their blind consumer...
Article
Full-text available
An emotional adjustment to blindness is the keystone to the blindness rehabilitation process. An instructor has the ability to support or detract from that adjustment from the very beginning of training, and, at some training centers, the cane travel instructor is the first instructor to work with the student. This article discusses the ways in whi...

I have spent a lot of time reading, listening, thinking, and talking with people about the sexual abuse that the blind community has been discussing lately. As many of you probably know, I have a fascination with writing, especially when it comes to synthesizing what I’ve been hearing from others. I have composed an article very similar to the kind...
Presentation
Abstract: All education and rehabilitation professionals who work with the blind play a role in the social justice movement to help the blind achieve first-class status in society. Structured Discovery practitioners are conscious and intentional in their role, striving to ally themselves with the organized blind movement. Impacts on public attitude...
Presentation
Abstract: Group instruction in adjustment-to-blindness training is normal, especially at residential training centers. Group instruction is not merely a compromise that enables a finite number of instructors to serve more than one student simultaneously; group instruction enhances educational outcomes and contributes to the emotional adjustment to...
Presentation
I was asked to give this presentation at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School by the American Constitution Society and Disabled & Allied Law Students Association.

Article
Full-text available
For blind people, just like anyone else, what they do becomes a habit. If they practice productive thoughts or behaviors, they will become habits. If they practice unproductive ones, they, too, will become habits. Certain techniques for accomplishing life's daily tasks and the attitudes and beliefs associated with them can have lasting impacts on t...
Article
Full-text available
Residential adjustment-to-blindness training programs frequently include classes in personal and home management. These can be offered as one combined class or separated into two classes. Either way, there is substantial room for exchange and overlap. Personal and home management classes work in synergy with the residential apartment experience. Ma...
Article
Full-text available
The keystone of the blindness rehabilitation process is the emotional adjustment to blindness. Such an adjustment involves building confidence and self-efficacy, comfort with one’s identity as a blind person, feelings of first-class status in society, and an overall willingness to greet the world with pride. Students bring with them to training a c...
Article
Full-text available
Though the Hawai‘i School for the Deaf and Blind no longer serves blind students, it retains its name from the pre-integration era when it did. This provides a case study where the obsolete name creates community confusion about where blind children and adults access education and rehabilitation services. The name unnecessarily ties the blind to a...

This conference was held by the United States Access Board and the Hawai'i Disability and Communication Access Board. We discussed design components of the built environment that are helpful, harmful, or irrelevant to blind people, including traffic signals, truncated domes, signage on buildings and in office spaces, and low-hanging objects, such a...

There has been a recent resurgence of Native American and First Nations language use as a part of a broader effort toward community wellness and cultural revival. In order for blind people in these communities to fully participate in language-oriented programming, the establishment of a braille code for the language in question is necessary. Creati...
Article
Full-text available
Residential adjustment to blindness training programs operate on a schedule similar to a standard full-time work schedule. Occasionally, students and staff break from the routine schedule to venture out into the community for field classes, which contribute to the adjustment to blindness training process in many ways. There is a widespread idea tha...
Presentation
Abstract: Sometimes, an instructor and student find themselves traveling through environments where languages other than the primary instructional language are spoken. For a given additional language, for a given instructor, student, and bystander, there are potentially eight combinations of who can speak this second language. Each scenario is defi...
Presentation
